Helping Others

Verse of the Day:   Acts 20:35

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’           

I read an article about random acts of kindness raising dopamine levels and boosting your mood. Shortly afterwards I happened to read Acts 20:35 and it all made sense.  We feel good when we do good deeds for others because we are blessed when we give unselfishly. With everything that’s going on in the world today, people desperately need help. Give what you can whether it’s your time, money, food goods or encouragement and you will be blessed. Do what you can for as many as you can.

Heavenly Father, thank You for all the blessings I’ve received, they are too many to count. Let me be a blessing to those in need. Grant me a heart of compassion and spirit that is willing to serve. Help me to share Your love with those who desperately need you as you give them strength to keep going. Amen
